  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: A Mentality of...

    The physicality of the game is what brought Morgan Churchill to football.

    From the first time he knew what the game was, Churchill was entranced with the rough nature of this new sport.

    And it instantly became his favorite.

    “I just always loved football since I was little,” Churchill said. “Being able to be that physical, being able to hit somebody, that just really stuck out to me as something that looked like a lot of fun.”

  • Tim Mattingly hired at Central...

    Tim Mattingly was just waiting for the right opportunity.

    Mattingly knew that it would have to be the right job for him to leave his position as the defensive coordinator for the Meade County Green Wave, a spot he had held for the past 10 years.

    And when the head coaching position at Central Hardin High School became available, he knew that this was his chance.

  • WC boys lose to Taylor, C'...

    In their second matchup in 10 days against the Campbellsville Eagles, the WC Commanders came away with another loss to their regional foe, falling this time by a score of 75-52.

    Head Coach Russell Burkhead’s team started off slow, falling behind 19-11 after the first period. WC fell victim to the snowball effect from there, with the Eagles claiming a commanding 39-21 lead going into the locker room.

  • Back to Back

    Last week, the WC Commanderettes were able to string together back-to-back wins for the first time this season, improving to 5-15 on the year.

    In a 54-44 win against the Campbellsville Lady Eagles last Thursday night, the Commanderettes were able to build a 9-4 lead halfway through the first quarter and built it up to 15-9 by the end of the period.

  • Byas, Lewis sign with C’ville

    WC football seniors Sean Lewis (linebacker) and Ty’Lyn Byas (running back) signed their letters of intent last week to play college football for the Campbellsville Tigers next season.

    The duo was part of a 37-player recruiting class (high school seniors) that signed with the team last Wednesday.

    According to a press release, Tiger Head Coach Perry Thomas called the class “awesome” and noted his staff’s success in signing several Kentucky prospects.

  • Commanderettes can’t end 17-game...

    Marion County

    The last time a WC Commanderette (3-15, 1-6) team was able to celebrate a victory over bitter rival Marion County (11-11) was Jan. 3, 2006.

    And after last Saturday night’s 54-28 loss, WC will have to wait until at least next season to put a stop to their current 17-game skid.

    One issue that Head Coach Bernard Smalley, who has yet to beat the Lady Knights during his tenure as head coach, saw with his team was their lack of enthusiasm to play their border rival.

  • WCMS 7th grade falls in...

    NCAA Tourney Game One: St. Joe (Red)

    The WCMS seventh-graders turned a slow start in to a rout by halftime as WCMS led the visiting team 41-13 at the half.

    WCMS continued to dominate as they went on to a 57-33 victory.

    Cameron Willis led the scoring attack with 20 points while dishing out five assists. Devin

    Hurst chipped in with 17 points and pulled down 10 rebounds while Jbias Dawson contributed nine points in the win.

    NCAA Tourney Semifinals: Bardstown

  • Gordon and Dunn continue success...

    The St. Catharine Patriots made a return trip to east central Indiana on Saturday, this time visiting Taylor University.

    The meet at Taylor would mark the second of the indoor season for the Patriots, and they would be looking for redemption and even continued success.

    The Patriots found that success in Neshaun Gordon (Louisville) and Tyler Dunn (Harrodsburg), who were coming off of first- and second-place finishes in the triple jump at Indiana Wesleyan.

  • SCC falls on the road to No. 8...

    Machera Calhoun (Fort Myers, Fla.) and Heather Sandlin (Florence) combined for 31 points despite the Lady Patriots (3-15, 1-11 MSC) falling to the No. 8 Tigers of Georgetown (16-4, 10-2 MSC).

    If one thing was certain for the Lady Patriots in 2013-2014, it is that they don’t fall to tough opponents for a lack of effort.

    Led by the stupendous guard play of Calhoun and Sandlin, the Lady Patriots kept the Tigers on their heels for the entire contest.

  • Patriots take Georgetown to wire

    The St. Catharine Patriots (13-8, 7-5 MSC) couldn’t overcome foul trouble against the No. 13 Georgetown Tigers (18-5, 9-3 MSC) falling 86-81 on Thursday night.

    The Patriots couldn’t take advantage of double digit scoring nights from Omar Skinner (New Castle, Del.), Romeo Lewis (Detroit, Mich.) and Will Tolefree (Stone Mountain, Ga.) en route to their five point loss to Georgetown on the road.
